The Turks and Caicos golf resorts aren't plentiful in number, though golfing enthusiasts should find that the options are sufficient enough. There are actually only two golf courses in the island chain, and one of them can be found on the main island of Providenciales. Known as the Provo Golf and Country Club, this 18-hole gem caters to skilled and beginner golfers with its four sets of tees, and should you tee it up from the back, the total length is 6,560 yards, so you will most likely need all the clubs in your bag.
The Provo Golf and Country Club is the most renowned golf course in the Turks and Caicos, and it consistently ranks among the best golf courses in the entire Caribbean. This green and well-manicured course features lakes and rocky outcroppings to go with its palm trees and native shrubs. If the water doesn't get you, the bunkers just might, and you should find that the greens offer their own challenges. Provo Golf and Country Club visitors can work on their game before they start their rounds. The excellent facilities include a driving range and a collection of putting greens. When they're not playing an actual round, visitors can get some food or drinks at the full-service restaurant or inspect the goods at the pro shop. Grace Bay Road is where you will find the Provo Golf and Country Club, and just minutes away are some of the best Turks and Caicos beach hotels.
Should you be planning a visit to the island of Grand Turk and you want to add golfing to the picture, the Waterloo Golf Club is the place to go. The only option when it comes to the Grand Turk golf courses, this course offers nine holes and has a par of 54. The total length is 2,758 yards, and you will be happy to know that the daily fee can include as many rounds as you want. If nothing else, you might play the nine holes twice and make it a full eighteen. The small, yet fun Waterloo Golf Course is especially convenient for those who are enjoying Turks and Caicos cruises, as it can be found within walking distance of the cruise port. As is true at the Provo Golf and Country Club, visitors can rent clubs if they don't have their own. Also worth mentioning is the fact that the Waterloo Golf Course limits the number of players that can be on the course at any given time. As such, those who are serious about playing will want to consider a morning arrival.
These are the only Turks and Caicos golf resorts as of present. Plans are in the works to develop more golf courses, though it might be some time until new additions join the scene. One of the proposed projects has its sights set on the island of North Caicos, while another sees Salt Cay as its location of choice. Interestingly enough, there is a miniature golf course at Fun World TCI, so you might keep that in mind when planning your Turks and Caicos vacation. It's not all about the miniature golf course at Fun World TCI, however. This family-friendly attraction on Long Bay Road also features a go-kart track and an arcade.
